Blog-a-thon: Why am I Proud to be a Latina?

  In El Paso, I never credit the rich diversity of Mexican culture. Everyday, I hear the Spanish language and festive music, smell the greasy tacos and rice, and see the decorative murals, bright in color, adorned with scenes of fruit and gardens. It's easy to get bored of it all, when that is all that you see. I tend to take it for granted.  However, I once spent a whole summer in Arizona, with a group of girls around my age. There were about two other latinas, but the rest were…See More

"Can you please explain the Women's March to me? I'm a little confused about it's origin. By the way, did you know there was a Scientist March now?"

Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices

Posted on June 11, 2017 at 1:19pm 0 Comments

   Just recently, an amazing new policy was proposed- Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices. This policy would ensure that companies using the USDA Organic label refer to “humane “ treatment of animals. Yes, more work needs to be done before the standards require 100% humane treatment, but it is far better than what is required now.

Some of the new standards include:

  • A minimum space requirement…

Save the Wild Horses

Posted on June 11, 2017 at 1:00pm 0 Comments

   The Department of the Interior's​ Bureau of Land Management is given the responsibility of the Wild Horse and Burro Program, which seeks to manage the wild equine population. There is a debate about whether these animals are invasive species, or native to America, as thousands of years ago, horses became extinct in America, and weren't reintroduced until the 1500s, when Spanish conquistadors brought in their mustangs. Although the landscape has probably changed over the…

Posted on May 30, 2017 at 11:30pm 0 Comments

  Although polydactylism affects about 0.2% of the population, the fact that #5 represent the other 99.8%’s amount of fingers per hand may be one of the most important factors in the way society organizes itself. Because most people have two hands, your value became the midpoint from 0 to 10, with 9 in the highest place for a single digit. This is known as the base 10 system, which was developed in many ancient societies. Some societies even made you the base- a base 5…

Smart Growth in El Paso

Posted on May 30, 2017 at 10:30am 0 Comments

  I would like to implement smart growth into the newer regions of El Paso.  Three smart growth methods include the discouragement of zoning, cultivation of a community identity, and mixing of house size and price.

  By discouraging zoning, businesses, parks, and schools would be able to be built within neighborhoods, making it easier for people to walk wherever they need to go. Walking reduces vehicle use, and therefore pollution and traffic,…

Hi Taylor,

you asked me about the Women's March. It was in January 21 one day after Trump's Inauguration. It was a march to show that people around the country believed in equality for all genders. Here's more information on it https://www.womensmarch.com/global/

And yes, I heard about the Scientist March! I hope it really happens.
